Many couples want to put their personal style on their wedding and reception. Couples who enjoy card games can easily create memorable invitations with a little card-game flair. The added benefit is the fun can carry over into the reception and involve all the invited guests.

  1. 1

    Select card stock that complements the pattern on the back of the playing cards. Cardstock is available in many different patterns, so choose the one that best suits the playing cards' style. This card stock will serve as the actual invitation, so have the invitation information---the bride and groom's names, the date and location of the wedding, etc.---printed on the reverse side of the stock. Make sure you indicate on the invitation that guests should bring the playing cards that are included with the invitation to the wedding.

  2. 2

    Cut pieces of card stock the size of the playing cards; cut one piece of card stock for each guest you plan to invite to the wedding. Glue one playing card face up to each piece of card stock. Allow to dry. The card stock will make the playing cards sturdier. Insert the playing cards and invitations into addressed envelopes, making sure you include two playing cards for each couple invited.

  3. 3

    Tell the guests at the reception to display their playing cards on the table in front of them. Check each table's "hand" (or have others help you). Give a gift from the wedding party to the table of guests with the "winning hand."
